On occasion, maybe once a week or so, I get a popup that says I should upgrade to a higher package. It happens when I am logging into sites. I have all advertising disabled through the interface tab in the settings menu. So I am wondering why I am still getting these. It feels intrusive and it is disruptive to my daily work. I have a screenshot attached.  If someone could provide some insight into this. I like Kaspersky, but I don’t want to have to switch products over something like this.

Hello @Lumix14

Welcome!

Like all free software, Kaspersky Security Cloud Free has some “advertising”, Kaspersky are very transparent about this, additionally, the weekly prompt you’re seeing is not advertising (you may disagree), nor is it a News notification(s) & or Promotional materials;  it’s a reminder. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:
